  1. Greetings all! I am from Wisconsin near the Frozen Tundra and a avid designer and 3D printer... a consummate tinkerer. I have recently been 3D printing various vehicles and turning them into RC controlled vehicles. I would love to work on 3D model of the Weasel and RC the vehicle. I would also like to do it correct scale at 1:6. Here is where I could really use some help. I am really looking for ANY reference material that might be available that has dimensions, measurements, etc. There are some orthographic drawings online but they offer VERY little in the way of size, dimensions, etc. Even if you feel like throwing a measuring tape of your project vehicle, it would be a GREAT help to me!!!! If I get enough help to be able to create a fairly decent representation, I might make the files available to the group for anyone interested. Really do appreciate your time and effort, and your amazing ability to keep a part of history alive! Thanks!!!!
  2. Hello All, As I'm missing my data plate, I was looking for information what my serial number could be. Unfortunately there is not a lot data available. Anyway, the numbers I did found (with at least 2 numbers known) I compiled in below table. If you have numbers, please add them so we have a list of serial numbers for reference. I also had contact with the Studebaker Archive, but apparently there are no production records available for the M29(C). Anyway I have seen a production record for the US6, us I'm assuming they have something, but it is just not digged out of the pile? Does someone know if Studebaker has any records on Weasels? Thanks for filling up the list..... Frank
  3. I have gone through all the parts catalogs, TM's and articles about the weasel and compiled a list of all the production changes that I could find. The list is by no means a conclusive list of all the changes that happened during the weasel production run, so I would very much like people the chime in if you have anything to add or if you find any errors in my list. The one that are in red text are the ones that I'm unsure about and would like to have confirmed. I hope this list will be useful to anybody restoring a weasel to factory specs.
